* {{Misblamed}}: The show often gets blamed for copying ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''. In truth, Judd Winick had the idea for a while before getting the greenlight by CN to make it at around the same time ''American Dragon'' was in production and set to premiere. It was just bad timing in airing that didn't allow ''Juniper Lee'' to be more well known. Probably didn't help that ''Jake Long'' was backed by Disney who had a bit more widespread influence then CN. CN did pull a strong campaign at first when premiering the show (check out it's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvYTQ7--kiM first commercial]]), but neglected to advertise for the series in it's later seasons.

** A few of this show's detractors will point out that this show's plot is almost the same as WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong [[note]]Again a lot of this was just coincidence, not deliberate.[[/note]]. Not helping matters is the fact that both shows came out virtually around the same year.

*** Sort of. Juniper claims that's why she does it, and Ah-Mah doesn't deny on trying to catch up on life now that she has a grand-daughter, but she is actually traveling the world trying to find a way to allow Juniper to leave Orchid Bay.

* CultClassic: While overshadowed in comparison to ''Jake Long'', it does have a dedicated group of fans. Heck Juniper got a name drop in the crossover with ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' and ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'', so the writers of that episode were clearly fans as well.

* TheScrappy: [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Ray Ray]] can and will grate on your nerves, primarily because he goes {{Squee}} at various disasters unfolding in front of him, talks and yells almost incessantly, and even comes across as a mild annoyance to Juniper as well. The fact that he also acts a ''lot'' like the TropeNamer in terms of personality doesn't help.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Kai Yee was a rather competent, charismatic and interesting villain, being a [[FallenHero former Te Xuan Ze turned rogue]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist for a credible reasons]], a potential EvilCounterpart to June and giving some development to the series' universe. However, he only appeared one episode and the show was cancelled before he got a chance to return.

* WhatAnIdiot: Quite a few people get thrust into dangerous situations in the show, without any sense of gravity whatsoever ''(the tourists in episode 3, for example, think it's all part of the show when heavy objects are catapulted into their boat, which sinks and leaves them stranded in the ocean)''. sometimes even the monsters do this. Ray Ray tends to provoke this quite a bit some times.
